Jessica Goodrich Bio – Jessica Goodrich Wiki
Jessica Goodrich, a Massachusetts woman, was found dead in the woods in rural Georgia last month, and her boyfriend — a long-haul trucker — is now accused of murdering her.
Jessica Goodrich was 46 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
According to Boston 25 News, Jason Michael Palmer, 47, has been arrested while driving through Indiana. He is slated to be extradited to Camden County, Ga., and will face charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and concealing a body. Authorities allege he killed his girlfriend, 46-year-old Jessica Goodrich.
According to NBC Boston, Goodrich’s body was found on Oct. 8 in the woods near Roadie’s Chevron Truck Stop in Woodbine, Ga. A cause of death has not yet been released. After identifying her body, investigators determined she had been traveling as a passenger in Palmer’s truck.
A motive has not yet been released, but Goodrich’s younger sister, Pamela Shays, told News4Jax that Goodrich and Palmer were in an on-and-off relationship.
Shays says that Palmer contacted both her and Goodrich’s son in the days before her death, and he told them that they were arguing and having problems.
“He told me he was going to put my sister on a plane and send her back home,” Shays said. “He told my nephew that he put my sister in a hotel and booked a train ticket to send her back home.”
Goodrich’s family says that she never returned to Massachusetts and that Palmer stopped communicating with them.
Palmer has not yet entered a plea on the charges against him, and online arrest records do not reflect an attorney authorized to speak on his behalf. He is being held without bond until he can be extradited to Georgia.
